G4 Acquires TWiT

OK I guess I was too subtle - this is an April Fools joke. I haven't sold TWiT to anyone, least of all G4! I have some very exciting news. G4 Entertainment Inc has agreed to acquire TWiT in an exchange for stock and $1 cash. We've been in extensive conversations for the past few months, but I've been reluctant to say anything until today. Here's an excerpt from the G4 press release which crossed the wires a few hours ago: G4 CEO , Loof Slirpa, said about the merger, "The synergy between G4's smokin' hot babes and classic TV series, and the TWiTs high end tech knowledge will allow us to reach a vast audience of teenage boys and disaffected computer programmers." Entrepreneur and media commentator Mike Arrington of Techcrunch.com said, "The dynamic synergy between the old web and the new makes this a win-win for everyone but the audience. I wish I had thought of it first." The combined companies' new slogan will be "Netcasts you love, from babes in short skirts. This is G4twitTV." Chief TWiT, Leo Laporte said, "I'm moving to Canada."
